The South Shore has one of the fastest aging populations in the Province. The health care needs of our family, friends and neighbours — and the needs of our health services providers — have evolved since the South Shore Regional Hospital was built in 1988 and our facility must evolve as well.

Today, South Shore Regional patients arrive with more complex and often more than one health condition. Patients find themselves undergoing diagnosis and treatment in spaces not designed for that purpose. Privacy is a challenge, particularly in serious health situations and traumatic life moments.

Our top-flight medical and support personnel are impeded by lack of functional space.

It’s time for South Shore Regional to begin a new era of health care delivery.
